Fun For Friday - Button Cards

A quick post today before the guild meeting.

At a show I picked up this new button card, it's my favorite.


Here is a sweet one


I think this one is from my buddy Jill.  Aren't they handsome devils.  Buttons on your underwear, lol.


I love this one too, being an avid game enthusiast and bingo player.   Educational Lotto - funny, huh?


As you can tell, I'm not a serious collector.....yet.

After taking down the Easter Decorations, I decided to group my few London themed objects.  Almost anything can make a vignette if they are related in some way, an old toy bank, toy bus, pepper shaker and tea accessories.


Happy Friday Everyone!

  1. The button cards are interesting. Looks to me like you have the start of a serious collection. They are so much more interesting than the way buttons are packaged today.

  9. I will have to look at my mother's and aunt's button cards with a keener eye from now on! What fun cards you shared, thanks. So tell us about the background--did you make it? I recognize many of the fabrics. What a great way to use up fabrics that we still have bits and pieces of and need just the right project. Please share. Thanks Ardis

  10. Don't you wish our packaging was more interesting. I think you have the good beginnings of a new collection. I'm going to pay closer attention to those old button cards.
